Heavy Downpour Ruins Primary school at Tamale

The Sakasaka Primary School in Tamale – the alma mater of the Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, was destroyed by heavy rainfall on the 9th of June, 2020.

The heavy downpour ripped off the school’s entire roof which resulted in the destruction of the school’s furniture and learning materials.

The Sakasaka Primary School Headmistress, Ms Olivia Wadzari, told DGN Online that the school was formed in a pavilion in the 1970s and was later on developed by the Parent Teacher Association into a wooden structure.

“I managed to develop the wooden structure into a block building in 2013 when I took over and the school was twice hit by rainstorm.” She said.

She said the learning materials saved from the downpour were moved to a safe place.

Ms. Waszari said a report has been sent to the Metro Director of Education to find a solution to the issue.

She appealed to individuals, institutions to come to the school’s aid and help them to resolve the issue before school reopens.

Schools across the country were compelled to shut down due to the Coronavirus pandemic, particularly at the basic level.

Meanwhile, officers from the National Disaster Management Organization (NADMO) visited the school to determine the level of damage caused by the rain for further actions.
